Jim Jones Bodyguard Fights Cops; Arrested After Summer Jam

A bodyguard for Harlem rap star Jim Jones was arrested following Jones’ peaceful performance during Hot 97’s annual Summer Jam concert last night (June 1) at Giants Stadium in New Jersey.

 

After the show ended around 10:30 PM, the rapper’s entourage became involved in a skirmish with police officers, who accused Jones’ entourage of attempting to incite a riot, by making references to the Sean Bell shooting.

 

According to The New Jersey Record, police officers arrested Charles Chandler, 26, for allegedly grabbing a trooper’s head and face with both hands.

 

Another officer intervened and restrained Chandler, who was arrested and released on $15,000 dollars bail.

 

Other than the fracas backstage, Hot 97’s Summer Jam was relatively peaceful.

 

Over 44,000 people showed up for the annual concert, which featured performances by Ray J. and Yung Berg, Alicia Keys, Raekwon, Method Man, Ghostface, Funkmaster Flex, Lil Wayne, Kanye West, Young Jeezy, Public Enemy and numerous others.

 

Only six people were arrested on a variety of misdemeanor charges.
